      Thank you Eric,

      Are the parts molded in usual plastic or resin ? I am quite interested in ordering this set.

      Best regards, Stéphane

      Price tag at Hannants is 17,50 GBP (31 USD, 25,8 EUR).

      Looks like injection plastic, but I'd like to have a closer look before I order a set.

      It is injection plastic, the same as Ivo has used for his recently issued Carvair and B727-100 fuselages and Argonaut engines.

      I already orderd my set at Hannants last week. As far as I know only Continental and Delta are using the B767-400, correct? Where can I get the decals for one of those airlines for the B767? I will have to us a set of a -300 or two sets of a -300 to mmake one -400?!

      Anybody knows where to get the decals? Which options are there?

      Daniel

      Currently on the line:
      B747SP Air Namibia or Corsair (not yet decided)
      B777-200LR Air India
      B777-200 American One World
      ...and lots more...

      bugs, I did get an email from Russell that he has some inbound so try him.....
      Liner, yes it is plastic with a couple if injector pin knockouts in the winglets. (no biggie though)
      and the MLG has alomost no detail (Can anyone get closeup Pics?)Look looks a stick with axles on it bit nothing that cannot be fixed.

      astittot, Brazil decal had the delta towel scheme on their sheets with 767-300 hannants may have it or i have seen it on ebay every now and then.they usually sell in the $20+ rabge so it may pay to order from hannants or Russell if he has any.As for Continental....the standard scheme applies, maybe a spare set of 777 decals from the miniraft kit or a set of cut down A300 decals.Just gotta ad-lib the serials.

      Cheers

      Eric,

      Thanks for the information, I am flying to Malaysia via Amsterdam on Wednesday the 21st, I have planned a (probably costly ) visit to Luchtvaart Hobby Shop beside Schiphol, they seem to stock an incredible range of airliner stuff, not to mention Bra.Z. Models.

      Best regards, Stéphane

      Has anyone had the opportunity to try the fit of this conversion kit, yet? I plan on ordering from AHS shortly and if this kit doesnt fit right it would save me money on the extra decals and engines needed for the model.

      Hey all! Sorry to Bring up such an old thread but I figured it was better than starting a new one on the same subject... Is this conversion kit still available? I can't find it listed anywhere. I really want to convert a Zvesda 767!

      Thanks!

      Chris

      I converted a 767 to a 767-200, the remaining fuselage parts were exact to convert a second 767 to a 767-400. For complete real conversion you need some main wheels from a 777 (had some from a minicraft), extended wingtips (scratchbuilt) and the mainwheel bars hightened for some millimeters.
      if you don't get a conversion kit.

      It's not as easy a conversion as it might seem. Keep in mind that the cabin windows are the same as the 777 as well.

      this cant be done with the braz conversion. For this, fill the windows and use decals for a 767-400

      My saying: two Boeing 767-300's (either from Revell or Zvezda) make a -200 and a -400. Remaining parts from the -200 make exact fuselage inserts for the -400. Was also using 777 wheels and hightening the mainwheel bars scratch, winglets also built scratch from styrene sheet. Draw decals offers Delta and Continental decals for this version. Result may not be achieving rivet-counters standards. So what ?

      It was my understanding that this conversion kit had everything (wheels, fuselage extensions, gear) but its entirely possible I was mistaken! Either way It doesn't look like its around anymore

      Probably missed it in the above thread, but having done a 767-400 pre-flood, the tricky part is extending the gear attachment point outboard on the wing. That longer main gear just won't retract without a more outboard pivot.

      Gerry

      To continue with the thought, moving the main gear outboard meant the original pivots wouldn't fit into the thinner outboard part of the wing. Hence the little fairing on the underside that was in the Braz conversion. Now the gear will retract OK, but there is a gap in the base of the main gear covers, so a little rectangular "flap" was added at the base of the main gear covers.

      All this due to the aft fuselage extension. Nothing had to be done to the front gear, so the shorter original gear gives a decided nose-down appearance on the ground.

      Some "short term fix" awaiting the delayed 787 deliveries! A lot more than just extending the gear, adding 777 windows and wheels.

      Try using a metal landing gear for the 767... I am doing a Boeing 767-400... I completed the frame but just the landing gear and tires to instal.. the 767-400 main landing gear is different to the 767-300s and 767-200s....
